  • Product Description
 

This book is a probing, refreshing and wide-ranging critique of the debate on the rationality and logic in traditional Africa. The author, Fayemi Ademola Kazeem, engages in an epistemic and hermeneutic discourse on proverbism with a view to establishing – not a unique model of African reasoning and logic or peculiar African paradigms of rationality- that the traditional Africans were as much logical and rational like every other people of the world. Using the proverbial resources of the Yoruba culture as a foil, the author hermeneutically explores the cognitive areas of proverbism discourse: Epistemology and peace and conflict management. The new African philosophic insights the book offers to proverbial scholarship, its elegant style, the ability to distinguish the central threads of recent debates from the side-issues and to follow through their implications for a multicultural world combine in charming the readers'' interests in the book. Students, researchers and teachers in philosophy, African literary studies, peace studies and the reading public will find the book illuminating and useful.
